Forget the revolving timber summer house. This summer house does detail beautifully, especially the tiling in the bathrooms, which somehow resembles a 3D puzzle. It also is tightly planned with creative space-saving solutions to make the best possible use of a limited area. Rooms are arranged to make the most of the views over the Kench. The house sits well among the other chalets and the coastal landscape.
